Grants Pass, Ore. — Fire crews with the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety were able to rescue a dog and four chickens from a heavily involved structure fire Friday night.

Officials say the one person inside was able to make it out of the house on their own before crews arrived.

The fire was called in just after 10 p.m. on the 1800-block of Nebraska Avenue. When crews arrived, the house was fully engulfed in flames. Firefighters were able to knock down the fire in less than 15 minutes, but the house suffered significant damage.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. The American Red Cross is assisting the resident with temporary housing and other necessities. The dog’s condition has not been released.
